Entry opens today, this was a blast last year, little cold but great property. I'm trying for row 10.

Any idea on spectator admission price? Sounds like a good reason for a Sunday ride to go cheer y’all on.

Yes sir I did and it was very cold. Sure working a check might have been even worse. I forget my row # but finished before the very cold miserable rain started.

Rob..... I've never done an enduro.. Just curious, what does "entering on Row 10" mean?

Is that a starting position? Do you enter based on your expected speed so the really fast guys go for rows 1-4 and then slower from there? If that is the case, how many rows are there? I would think you're not at the back...I've seen you ride.

Enduros are ran quite a bit different from other events. Your starting position means nothing. You can just request row when you enter. I'm just trying to get through a little earlier and if wet it won't be as beat up. Start on first couple of rows and sometimes it's hard to follow course. The AA or pros so to speak are generally ran 1 per row starting around row 20. They put 4 or 5 riders per row depending on the club. What's neat is, you can ride with your buddies no matter the class as rows have nothing to do with that either. There is usually 4 restarts for us slow guys and 5 or 6 for the faster guys. They will go 15 or so more miles. If you stay on or close to being on time you get a little rest at every restart. You ought to try it, just a fast trail ride for most of us!! Not nearly as intense as close course racing. If lucky you won't run anything but once, sometimes if property is small you'll some of it twice.

I'll be working one of the checks for this enduro next weekend. (location = triple gates).
We are truly blessed to have McMahan Ranch open his amazing property for this enduro.
...lots of fresh tracks, with scenery like this!!!

Looks like less than 70 spots available if you're considering it. Capped at 350 riders.

Right on the verge of throwing in the towel. Spent the day driving all over looking for a piece of land to ride that isn't five hours round trip away. After 11 months of no riding and forests closed all the time or too far away I am kinda discouraged. Sold my DS I never rode in ten years a couple months ago and haven't missed it a minute. The Sandwinder could easily be the "enduro of the year" but I just ain't ready or even feeling it. And motel rooms have gotten real real old.

Right now event is sold out, but:

"George McMahan I’ve heard rumors that AMSA may raise the limit to accommodate late comers; stay tuned!!"

Ended drizzling the whole race and was a very challenging, slick, rutted up, and rooted course. I dropped or fell of the hills at least 10 times. Plus not myself out for a second hitting a low hanging limb(was marked).

There was 16 that started over 60, the 4 of us were only ones to finish. Stubborn or brave, who knows.
